I am excited to spread the word that one of our Junior High students, Damein Hunt, will be participating at the Special Olympics Summer Games at Penn State University, State College. This event brings together over 2,000 athletes and 750 coaches from across the state and is held from June 4th-6th. Damein will be competing in 1 track and 3 field events and participate in the opening ceremonies. Damien is "excited to be given the opportunity to be around , meet and to compete with other kids from all over Pennsylvania".
Ms. Zbrzezny and the junior high school art students have completed their 2nd mural in conjunction with Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and local artist Laura Jean McLaughlin. The new mural is based on the history of the communities that make up the district. We pay homage to the past with images of Logstown and the Shawnee Native Americans, Mad Anthony Wayne, Old Economy, and American Bridge.
Thank you to everyone who donated to and supported our cause. Donators: The JHS Student Council, The JHS Pencil fund, New Alliance FCU, Mary Miklos, and Biba.
January 15,2015 twelve Ambridge Junior High students competed at Pittsburgh Technical Institute in the Region One Technology Student Association Regional Competition for the first time in school history. The seventh and eighth grade students that participated in this event included Xavier Albring, Jacob Bailey, Lance Bordeaux, Nathan Erickson, Samantha Freed, Shane Killen, Zachary Ochman, Joshua Peters, Corey Shaffer, Jacob Shoup, Thomas Swaney, and Shamus Fitzgerald. The students prepared for this event over several weeks, putting forth a lot of hard work and effort. This work was compounded by the fact all student competed in a minimum of three events. Students competed in events that included career prep, prepared speech, problem solving, tech bowl, dragster design, digital photography, structural design, and many more. Eight of the twelve students were able to qualify for states in the event that they participated in, while others will be able to attend the state competition participating in different events. The state competition will be held in April at Seven Springs and we expect big things from this year’s group. Congratulations and good luck to all of the students who participated and thank you to Mr. Benson who led the students all the way! Click "Read More" To view results.
